I will be glad to get back to a few bush camps, all these camp sites are making us too soft and too complacent

We reached a bushcamp just on sunset and promptly got bogged in the sand and half the team set about digging us out. Drew decided we would cook on Genkos (small coal cookers with a ceramic insert) that night which put the wind up the cook group. Panic seemed to take hold at that ...
